Default Worst CBM villain

We've had a lot of villains over the years. Some good, some bad. But who are the worst?

More recently I say Electro, Ronan, Rhino, Ultron, Malekith, and Mandarin

Venom springs to mind. If I really thought about it perhaps I could think of worse.

For headlining villains who are actually major features of any Marvel and DC movies: Evil Breakfast Club Weapons Designer from Steel. It's a bad movie, an unsuccessful one, and he's such a pathetic villain I can't even remember his name. He's a broad strokes portrayal of an antagonist with minimal brains and brawn. At least other villains have staying power.


Also, pretty much any villain from before the modern movies that doesn't have a basis in the comics: so all the DC serial villains and Marvel TV Movie villains, plus Gus Gorman and the Nuclear Man from the Superman movies.

From the more modern films that were actually financially successful, in which the villains were just disappointing:

Batman and Robin's Poison Ivy and Bane. They're both just so disappointing on so many levels, and they make Mr. Freeze almost acceptable just because Ahnuld is at least having fun.

And I'll go ahead and say the Mandarin from Iron Man 3. At least Malekith and Yellowjacket were underdeveloped because the focus was on other supporting characters, like Loki or the Pyms: Yellowjacket and Malekith are tied to the conflict, but don't get developed beyond the conflict, and both are ultimately kind of pathetic. In a way Guy Pearce's Mandarin is worse because beyond the decoy plot (which isn't neccesarily bad, but does cut down on some of the villain's development) he's got piss-poor motivation ("You pranked me when you were drunk! I shall have my revenge!") compared to the other villains and his MO and his plan came off as derivative (probably wasn't intentional for IM3's decoy plot to be a 'roided up version of the theatricality and deception plot from TDKR, but it didn't help) and IM3 is arguably the first appearance of a flippant take on their Marvel formula. He doesn't take the situation seriously at all until the very end.

Malekith has to be the worst out of the recent comic book movies.

Arnold's Freeze, Electro, Mandarin, Ultron, these are villains that didn't live up to their potential but at least they have some enjoyable aspects like a camp factor or cool action scenes. Malekith is just a boring piece of **** character in Thor TDW. There is literally nothing about him that is enjoyable.

I thought Dr. Doom in the previous Fantastic 4 films was pretty weak. While Doom in the comics is kind of the blueprint for all other villains, in the movie he's just sort of there waiting for his powers to fully manifest so he can be bad for the sake of being bad.

It was like Tim Story had no clue what to do with a charismatic villain so he just kept him paper thin and one dimensional to be on the safe side.

Also, I'm gonna say, Mag-freakin'-neto in Days of Future Past. After everything they'd all been through--including Eric's incarceration for a crime he didn't commit, and FREAKING TRYING TO KILL MYSTIQUE since it's her that sets mutant extermination in place by taking out Dinklage--what does Eric do? He tries to take out Dinklage himself. Along with the president. On national TV.

Now, Magneto isn't a bad villain in terms of, like, filmmaker laziness like Dr. Doom, but he often makes bad situations worse. He's a lose canon. He's so impulsive he sometimes seems to be out of his mind.

I mean, at what point does Charles finally wash his hands of his old friend?

I like Nuclear Man and at least Mr Freese was charismatic.

Hector Hammonds probably the worst, he was terrible.

Spider-Man 1 Green Goblin. Dishonorable mentions to Poison Ivy, Bane from Batman & Robin, Nuclear Man, and that Bollywood stereotype ex from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Oh, and the alien boss guy in The Avengers.

I don't think the MCU has any truly 'bad' villains. They have had a lot of boring and non-descript ones but nothing outright embarrassing.

My picks:

1. Green Goblin from Amazing Spider-Man 2
2. Galactus from Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
3. Bane from Batman & Robin
4. Electro from Amazing Spider-Man 2
5. Rhino from Amazing Spider-Man 2
6. Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine
7. Parallax from Green Lantern
8. Sharon Stone from Catwoman
9. Dr. Doom from Fantastic Four & Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
10. Nuclear Man from Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Three TASM2 villains in the top five. Man, that movie was horrendous.

Worst of most recent: Malekith, Mandarin, Hector Hammond

Worst of the past: Nuclear man, Sharon Stone, Witch from Supergirl

Don't get the hate for Rhino. He is supposed to be a dimwitted Russian gangsta stereotype and he was exactly that

Top Five (in no particular order):

-Mr. Freeze (that George Clooney abomination)-First of all, casting The Governator to play him was a dumb idea. His plans makes no sense. AND you take a character who's whole thing is that he's lost the ability to feel anything other than love for his wife and hate for the rest of the world for what happened to her/him. Who's personality is, no pun intended, as "cold" as his physical body. You take that guy and turn him into a cackling pun-machine who's seems HAPPIER after the accident than before. UGH, so embarrassingly bad.

-Parallax (Green Lantern)-First of all, he looks like a giant yellow pile of space-diarrhea. You don't want to use the "giant yellow grasshopper" design from the comics, fine. But come up with something better than "enormous space fart." And then they took a pretty cool concept from the comics and turned it into something far less cool in the film. Also, they wasted Clancy Brown, which is unforgiveable.

-Bane (George Clooney abomination again)-They could not have missed the point of this character anymore if they TRIED!! Just so painfully GODAWFUL!!!

-Galactus (FF:ROTSS)-He's a giant space cloud, WTF!! Movies, STOP doing giant clouds/storms as villains, it doesn't work. And they don't even give him a VOICE. At least let him TALK!! And he's defeated in the most anti-climatic/nonsensical way possible.

-Deadpool (XMOW)-You take a character who's biggest claim to fame is that he never shuts up, his nickname is "the merc with the mouth), and you SEW HIS MOUTH SHUT!!!! Do I NEED to explain why this was a TERRIBLE idea. Not to mention that you cast the perfect actor to play him and then waste said actor (and turn him into Baraka from MK).

-Doctor Doom (FF 1/2)-You take one of the coolest villains ever, and turned him into a poor man's Norman Osborn from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. They got NOTHING right with this character, NOTHING!!

Dishonorable Mentions:

-Blackheart (Ghost Rider).
-Venom (SM 3).
-Malekith the Accursed (Thor: The Dark World).
-Two Face (Batman Forever).
-Poison Ivy (George Clooney AGAIN, jeez).
-Faye Dunaway in Supergirl.
-Sharon Stone in Catwoman.
-The Shredder (TMNT 2014).
-Kirigi and co (Elektra).
-Jigsaw (Punisher War Zone).

Deadpool and Sabretooth from XMOW, Dr. Doom, Galactus, parallax, Harry Goblin from ASM 2, Electro, Venom, and Rhino are all the worst villains in any superhero movie.

1A. Parrallax
1B. Hector Hammond
2. Electro
3. Venom
4. Mr. Freeze
5. Mandarin

No one tops the Green Lantern villains, they were just a new level of embarrassing. Jamie Foxx was terrible as Electro, the dialogue mixed with his cheesy delivery was just terrible. Topher ruined Venom, which actually looked cool whenever Topher's face wasn't sticking out but Topher was a complete miscast from Day 1. Mr. Freeze was just one horribly cheesy one-liner after another. The Mandarin twist ruined Iron Man 3, neither Ben Kingsley or Guy Pierce were any good and drunken Trevor Slattery was just cringeworthy, complete joke.

Worst villain in a Batman movie: Bane in Batman & Robin.

Worst villain in a Spider-Man movie: a toss up between Electro and The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Green Goblin.

Worst villain in a Marvel movie: almost too many to choose from, but I will go with Malekith.

Best Worst Villain: Mr. Freeze. He is truly terrible, but he offers a cool party.

Any comic book adaptation would find it nearly impossible to surpass 3 Dev Adam's handling of the villainous Spider-man.
